After almost six months, we're going to see sales for the PSP Go
pick up in Japan starting tomorrow.

(called Monster Hunter Freedom Unite
here) being released as a download on March 18 -- a voucher for the title will also be given away with new PSP Gos. The downloadable game by itself will cost ¥1,600 ($17.69) from the PlayStation Store.
Even though over three million people
already have this on UMD -- and even though Monster Hunter Portable 3
was just announced for PSP -- we still anticipate a lot of sales for this. People in Japan are just that thrilled about Monster Hunter
